Super Six...

Yesterday, we spent most of the day in the woods.  Celebrating Rufus' 6th birthday, he and his friends, had the wildest of times. Charging around the woods. Dressed as Superheroes, building dens, and cooking marshmallows and fire apples on a huge roaring fire.

To us the woods are the most perfect place for our boys to have a party.  The freedom, the secretive play amongst the trees, the poking of the fire, the smell of woodsmoke and the fresh air.  The little downpours didn't matter one bit... we loved every moment. 

I think I said it last year, but I love Ru's friends they are really the loveliest, most fun kids. It was SO much fun.. I totally forgot to take a single photo of the birthday boy! 

Charlie Bean is 6...

A busy afternoon preparing for the party - luckily I had superman to help with the blowing up of balloons!
Ok, please don't laugh at the cake!
My icing went slightly lumpy.  Butter was too hard.
But it tasted oh so delicious which is the main thing.
Charlie loved the lego theme, which was great considering he had mainly lego for his birthday!
Last night after school we had a quiet family party with cousins.
We feasted on homemade pizza, played with lego, laughed at the daftness of young boys and recalled memories of birth (well mum and I did, she was there when Charlie was born).
As dusk fell the sky turned golden and we all stood outside to marvel at the most spectacular sunset.
As the sky grew darker we lit the candle and sang Happy Birthday to our boy as he blew out his number 6.

6yr old goes a buggin

My boy is growing up!
Today we bought him a big boys scooter (JD Bug) for his 6th birthday next week.
His peers all scoot to school and to Beavers, so he was desperate to join in and NOT on his brothers micro scooter (too baby apparently).
This afternoon we went for a scoot along the docks in the sunshine.
One very happy nearly 6 year old indeed.
All ready he's trying to do stunts!
